I’m very sorry to hear of Johns death. John had been very generously helping with shared family history; I enjoyed our emails and Johns stories of of growing up and holidays with my Dad in the North East of England.
Sorry for the loss of John. Our thoughts go to all his family and friends in Canada Although I had I had only met John once, my sister Julie and I, communicated often about family history of the Kell’s/Robinson’s. Dads, Gordon Burton, mum was Olive Kell. John and his font of knowledge will be sadly missed.
